Spicers Balfour Hotel

Relax in art deco inspired spaces at this beautifully converted Queenslander retreat, bordered by Brisbane’s city fashion and art precinct.

Unique Features:

  • Heritage listed restored Queenslander building
  • Private rooftop with views to the bridge and city
  • Restaurant open for breakfast, lunch and dinner
  • Large suite style rooms onsite

From the sun and sand drenched islands in the east, to its cool and crisp mountain rainforests in the west – and all the attractions of a vibrant, modern city in between – Brisbane offers the best of both worlds. Make a journey to downtown Brisbane and you’ll suddenly realise how beautiful a city can be. Here you will find a unique combination of the old and the new – where sandstone cathedrals blend seamlessly with steel and glass skyscrapers, where modern architectural design is teamed with a healthy respect for tradition. And down at street level a network of grassy parks, palm trees and a river that snakes through the heart of town reflects the sub-tropical environment.
